We are thrilled to share news from our Madagascar team about a remarkable accomplishment of local community involved in mangrove forest protection.  Few years ago, Ankazomborona, a village located in the Ambilobe District, DIANA region Madagascar, engaged in a mangrove reforestation and protection project (785ha) with the support of WWF.  Today, during the 2-months shrimp season, the village supplies 10-14 tonnes of mangrove shrimp per day!!!

There is no question that forests and their biodiversity have many benefits to us all. Yet the direct impact they have on communities living around them is enormous.  Remote African communities rely heavily on forests for their source of sustenance for their families.  Partnering with these communities for forest protection is a win-win for us all: thanks to their active improvement the longevity of environmental projects is more secured.
